Is this an explanation about common rule of company?

2. Are You Learning English? These Songs May Help

This is fake news. I searched Giant's Causeway related to Led Zeppelin, so You tube showed this video for me as recommendable movie.

Many movies about history are long time playing. I searched the 3 words, "History","3 minutes". So, I could find this movies series. Very good, but one problem is, speaking speed is too fast for me.

Diary [英語 English]

Recently, my English ability became to be inferior. I know the reason. Because I didn't attend English class, and my weekly conversation class has been cancelled. I lose my eagerness for English. So, this is the result of that. Recently, unfortunately, I have a big frustration about my company. I think there is a possibility to resign current company. But if I resign this company, are there any possibility to join another company due to my age?

Due to my heavy frustration, I wished to drink alcohol from morning, but I have to take my family to some places. Because, my wife had to bring her car to repair shop for oil change. Due to that, I have to take my son to two English conversation classes. That will be ended at 1:30 pm. Can I drink Beer?

My wife said "No". Instead of that, she proposed to visit somewhere for changing my feeling. Exactly, that's a good idea, if I continue to drive, I don't have a longing for alcohol. So, I decided to drive to near Malibu. That's my destination for two years, "Byrds House".

I drove 405, but I made a mistake to change to Santa Monica freeway, so, I drove on Santa Monica Boulevard, and took Ocean Boulevard and PCH. The destination is located on Topanga. I imagined that place is located on complicated location. But I think, it is okay to use PCH and Topanga canyon road and one more Old Topanga Canyon road. Only 3 roads.

English [英語 English]

TEDだけだと苦痛なので、英語のトレーニング目的で、雑多な動画も聞いていきます。

1. David Bowie Last Interview Before His Dead



2.Riz Khan - Omar Sharif - 10 Oct 07

他の動画を見ていたら、オマー・シャリフはフランス語も話せるんですね。この動画でカイロのフランス系の大学を出たとも言っています。地理関係を考えればエジプトではフランス語の方が主流なんでしょうね。

TED [英語 English]

21. 4 ways to make a city more walkable | Jeff Speck

飛行機からアメリカの街並みを見ると、いかにデザインされているかがわかります。こういった機能、街のデザインをしっかりとしているから美しい街並みができるんですね。しかし僕は日本の雑多な曲がりくねったような街並みの方が好きです。表情があるので。

22.My son was a Columbine shooter. This is my story | Sue Klebold

これは僕には衝撃的なスピーチです。重大事件の加害者の親族がこれほどはっきり意見や感情を表明するのは、すごいですね。こういう点は日本もアメリカを見習うべきだと思います。最近の一つミスを犯した人を徹底的に、その親族まで、再起不能の状態にまで叩きのめす風潮はよくないですね。

23. How jails extort the poor | Salil Dudani


24.


25.


26.How we can find ourselves in data | Giorgia Lupi

がっかり [英語 English]

仕事で英語しか登場しないミーティングに参加していたのですが、もっとできるかと思っていたのに、何も発言できず、ちゃんと理解できず、議事録もとれず、最悪の気分で、まったく英語をトレーニングする気にならない...。今日、車を運転するとき、いつも聞いているラジオを、英語なんて聞きたくもないから、OFFにしてしまった。

しかしこんなことを、ここに吐露していることも、結局はもう一度、やってみようという気になるための作業の一環であることを僕は知っているのだけどね。

本当は金曜日の夜は、勝手に連休前の夜だ、と自己暗示をかけ、充実させようと、英語の練習も兼ねて日記を書いていたりしたのだが、そんな気にもならない。でもおそらく、明日はちょっと立ち直って、英語の日記を書いてみるだろう。

スピードラーニングだかなんだかの広告?で英語のリスニング能力は300時間聞くと、レベルが一つあがるそうだ。300時間ということは18000分。10分のTEDスピーチを1800個。まず4月末までに300個聞くことを目指そう。

TED [英語 English]

11.Help discover ancient ruins -- before it's too late | Sarah Parcak

リアル・インディ・ジョーンズのような方です。TEDは英語のトレーニングにもなるし、プレゼンの勉強にもなる、またそんなことよりもまず、パフォーマンスとしてのスピーチを楽しむことができ、またまたそれ以上に知的好奇心を満足させることができる。良いものを英語の先生から教わった。この弁論、スピーチという文化はなかなか日本では根付きませんが、日本語でもやれば良いのに。TEDの次なる展開は、世界のあらゆる言語で同じようなイベントをやる、とか。

このスピーチも非常に感動的です。あまり細部までよく分かりませんが、前よりも聞き取れるようになったことは間違いない。2月末までに100個聞きたいです。

12.Easy DIY projects for kid engineers | Fawn Qiu


こういうことにうちの子どもも取り組んで欲しい。というか自分でやってみたい。

13. Why you should know how much your coworkers get paid | David Burkus

実に論争を呼ぶ挑発的なスピーチです。

14. The psychology of your future self | Dan Gilbert


15. Why you should love statistics | Alan Smith


16. How to get better at the things you care about | Eduardo Briceño

この方の英語は僕には聞きやすいです。たぶんネイティブの方ではないと思うのですが、それで速度のハードルがちょっと僕には聞きやすくなるのかもしれません。内容は僕には非常に斬新でした。日本でもOJTというものが主流ですし、どの分野、どの段階でも、実践を重視する傾向にあると思われますが、この方の主張を考慮する価値は非常にあると思います。

17. Depression, the secret we share | Andrew Solomon

この方は文筆家で著名な方みたいです。僕はいままで鬱病の人によるスピーチというのは聞いたことがないので、いくつかのフレーズはとても新鮮でした。

18. What time is it on Mars? | Nagin Cox

これは考えてもみたことなかったテーマです。ちょうど子どもがスペースXの人の話を聞いてきたこともあって、興味深く聴けました。

19. Hannah Brencher: Love letters to strangers


20.Grit: the power of passion and perseverance | Angela Lee Duckworth

TED speech [英語 English]

TEDスピーチを100個聞いたら、リスニング能力が0.1ポイントぐらい上がる気がするのでやってみます。


聞き取れる英語なんですが、よく理解できていません。


この前のスピーチより早口ですが、ちょっとわかります。


この3つのスピーチの中では、一番わかりやすいです。そして感動的です。Keep Moving Forwardというディズニーの言葉は、ルイスと未来泥棒で使われるテーマですね。



これも聴きやすいです。


これは長くて小分けにして聞いていたら、結局わからなかった。




ちょっとどの英語を聴いても聴きやすくなってきた(?)このビルは調べるとシカゴの中心部にあるアクアと呼ばれるビル。225 N Columbus Dr #220, Chicago, IL 60601。近くまで行ったんだけどな。また今度行ける機会があれば行ってみたい。


このスピーチは前に聞いたことがあります。英会話の学校で、TEDを聞いてくるというのが宿題だったので、いつも短いのを選んでたんだよね。今回も短いのを選んでいたら、同じのを聞く、という・・・でも、このスピーチ、この芸術活動は面白いですね。途中でラッピングされたバスがでてきますが、日本のバスです!

9:A Journey Through the Mind of an Artist | Dustin Yellin

すごいな。中盤で語られるボッシュの絵画に影響を受けたという作品は圧巻ですね。このアーティストの作品は注目に値します。展示会があればぜひ行きたいですね。
別の動画をみつけました。どこに展示されているのでしょうか?


10:Use art to turn the world inside out | JR

この人はプレゼンが上手ですね。この記事に乗せた10のプレゼンターの中でダントツで上手。動きすぎず、スピーチのスピード、リズム、間、音楽をやっている人かな。調べるとJRというフランスの芸術家で、若干33歳。風格、余裕を感じますね。この人のアートは、僕には行ってみれば、行動する部分が、芸術要素の中核をなしていると思います。

この人の名前で検索すると、いくつか作品が見れます。Wikipediaでも相当量の記事がかかれている人で、日本でも展示会が何回か行われています。
